WHEATLAND COUNTY, August 19, 2022 – Wheatland County is excited to announce its partnership with Shaw Communications in bringing broadband connectivity into the County’s West Hwy 1 and Goldfinch Industrial areas! Shaw Communications has officially been awarded Wheatland County’s Rural Broadband contract to bring connectivity into selected areas of Wheatland County.
Shaw will provide a fibre network solution to the West Hwy #1 industrial area, Goldfinch industrial area, connect fibre to the home for residents in Cheadle, and construct a connection point within Carseland for potential future residential services.
Wheatland County’s Rural Broadband initiative will provide a reliable and scalable high-speed network, with broadband speeds and capacity capable of supporting diverse business needs. Wheatland County’s industrial areas will allow business customers to leverage Canada’s fastest fibre network speeds while also increasing the possibility of future network expansions into residential areas.
The industrial build will be completed by the summer of 2024, with Wheatland County’s portion of the cost at $2.625M.
